    Salt into meat
    browned briefly.
     
    Carrots, paprika, potatoes.

    Dr.Limor’s Cradle of Love
    
"Desire fulfilled is a tree of life” (Proverbs13; 12)

    Couples maintaining a long term relationship, be it marriage or any other format of 'couplehood', quite often lose site of the mere notion of its properties; the importance of the TWO that produce a...

    I am a romantic.  A serious over the top, anything can happen, sweep me off my feet, knight in shining armor, bring flowers on a first date, knees buckle at the first kiss, beshert seeking, happily ever after, underdog wins, men make passes at girls who wear glasses, you don’t look...

    Mai bine singur decât cu o companie proastă [Better single than with bad company] – Romanian proverb

    When I was single, I met lots of people who thought that not being married was the worst thing that could happen to them. They allowed their marital status to define --...

  • A rabbinic lesson in marriage counseling

    March 6, 2013 | 8:54 am

    All too often, religious and societal taboos impede honest dialogue about difficult issues that can affect any marriage, such as spousal abuse, blended families, adoption and infidelity.

    Learning how to deal with those situations is one reason why Associate Rabbi Adir Posy of...

  • Jews vocal on both sides of France’s gay marriage debate

    February 5, 2013 | 11:42 am

    Wide-eyed and smiley, Elay-Gabriel seems utterly unaffected by the French media’s sudden interest in him.

    A dozen French journalists have visited the 18-month-old in recent months because he is trapped in a sort of legal limbo: He cannot obtain citizenship because the state does...

  • The queerness of love: A Jewish case for same-sex marriage

    January 24, 2013 | 4:17 pm

    Last year, I officiated at the first same-sex wedding in the 145-year history of my synagogue.  For a Conservative congregation, this was quite a break with tradition.  Nevertheless,  I was proud to stand beneath the wedding canopy with this couple, who affirmed the sacredness of...

  • Money saving ideas: For richer, not poorer

    By Elyse Glickman

    January 16, 2013 | 2:07 pm

    Tying the knot doesn’t have to be synonymous with fastening a financial anchor around newlywed couples. It just requires great care, sufficient research and attention to detail.

    Even with the best planning, however, it might be hard to believe you could pull off a dreamy wedding...

  • If You Have Love, Does Marriage Matter?

    By Ilana Angel

    January 13, 2013 | 8:29 pm

    Ever since I was little I wanted to get married.  When I tied the knot the first time it was a remarkable time in my life.  I loved my husband, my parents walked me down the aisle, all my siblings were there, and my life was full of hope and promise.  Even though my marriage did...

  • An age of broken glances: On ‘Why Love Hurts’

    By Rabbi David Wolpe

    December 19, 2012 | 10:00 am

    Each time I officiate at a marriage, I perpetrate a small fraud. I read the ketubah, the marriage contract, in its original Aramaic and then I read the “translation.” The translation is actually a confection of sweet-spun phrases about creating a home of warmth, openness, and...

  • Jewish groups ready to weigh in as Supreme Court considers same-sex marriage

    December 11, 2012 | 4:24 pm

    With public acceptance of same-sex marriage growing, liberal Jewish groups are hoping the U.S. Supreme Court will strike down the Defense of Marriage Act that they have long opposed.

  • A more modern view of homosexuality

    By Rabbi Yosef Kanefsky

    December 5, 2012 | 10:29 am

    The American Modern Orthodox community has just entered uncharted territory. Last week, our largest rabbinic organization, the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA) formally withdrew its support of JONAH (Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality). JONAH has long been the...

  • Israel gets same-sex divorce before same-sex marriage

    December 4, 2012 | 2:12 pm

    An Israeli court has awarded the country's first divorce to a gay couple, which experts called an ironic milestone since same-sex marriages cannot be legally conducted in the Jewish state.

    A decision this week by a family court in the Tel Aviv area "determined that the marriage...

  • ‘Blue Lagoon’ Honeymoon

    By Elyse Glickman

    November 16, 2012 | 2:16 pm

    Islands and honeymoons are a time-tested match made in heaven. Perhaps that’s why so many newlyweds flirt with Fiji, a gorgeous archipelago nation in the South Pacific. 

    This country is the embodiment of romance. One of its most recognizable islands is the Turtle Island resort,...

  • Why Straight Men Should Support Gay Marriage

    November 12, 2012 | 5:00 pm

    I originally posted parts of this blog back in February.   Today my son showed me a video on Facebook that I thought was so fabulous, I decided to post excerpts and share the video.  I love this video and laughed out loud because the humor is so honest.  I support marriage.  Gay or...

    Scroll to bottom for video

    Every now and then we forbid certain things to certain select individuals: Boxers may not use their fists in casual fights; CIA agents may not write freely of their personal experiences. I think it is time for a new restriction: any mention of Hitler,...

  • Rabbi reverses interfaith marriage policy

    By Julie Gruenbaum Fax

    September 27, 2012 | 2:06 pm

    It’s not often that a rabbi’s High Holy Days sermon is interrupted by a standing ovation. But that is what happened — twice — when Rabbi John Rosove, senior rabbi of Temple Israel of Hollywood, dedicated his sermon on the first day of Rosh Hashanah to explaining why he was changing...

  • Stage dramedy tackles interfaith marriage taboo

    August 15, 2012 | 11:00 am

    If you take Israel out of the equation, there’s little in the Jewish world that gets people as riled up as the idea of intermarriage. For most secular and liberal Jews, intermarriage, which once carried a huge social stigma, has become more acceptable. Visit any Reform synagogue in...

  • Love, Faith & Converting

    By Ilana Angel

    August 12, 2012 | 7:16 am

    I would like for my son to marry a nice Jewish girl.  It is important to me, and while I know some people think it is ridiculous, I will feel like a bit of a failure as a mother if he marries a woman who is of another faith.  Love is elusive and his happiness is the most important...

  • Divorce, Decisions, Heartbreak & Motherhood

    By Ilana Angel

    July 23, 2012 | 5:19 pm

    I have been divorced for 16 years.  I left my husband when my son was only a few months old and while it was very difficult, staying would have been harder.  I knew I needed to leave and if I hung on for my son he would not have been in a happy place.  In the end the marriage would...

    July 18, 2012 | 10:00 pm

    I have been dating a man for a little over four months.  By dating of course I mean I have been in a relationship.  From our first date there was a connection and we simply fell into a relationship without really dating.  It has been fun, effortless, complicated, and exhausting.  I...

    I was very much looking forward to talking to Twitter’s @AsianPosh1.  She has been following me on Twitter for a long time and has been truly lovely. She defends me to the haters, reads my reality blog and my lifestyle blog, and always has a kind word for everyone who needs it. ...

  • Is Sex Without Emotion a Deal Breaker?

    By Ilana Angel

    June 21, 2012 | 5:11 pm

    I had a conversation this week about sex and cheating that was fascinating.  By fascinating of course I mean men are pigs.  I think sex requires emotion to be good, but the man I was speaking with insisted sex can be great without emotion, and sometimes the lack of emotion can even...

  • For the Love of God, Just Break Up With Him Already!

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    June 18, 2012 | 9:30 am

    There is a culture in our relationship obsessed young women’s world that has obfuscated a dark truth.  We have so overly focused on fixing our relationships that we have become completely blind to the fact that we’re in terrible relationships.  We read articles and talk and think for...

  • Conservative rabbinic group issues guidelines for same-sex wedding rituals

    June 4, 2012 | 10:56 am
